We're sorry, this project is not currently recruiting volunteers. You can see a list of our available projects here.

LOL Fridays is a fantastic social club for young adults with Down’s Syndrome, supported via funding from Magic Little Grants at Local Giving.

The club takes place every other Friday evening where volunteers assist the young people to engage in various different activities, either in a rented hall, out and about on a trip, or over Zoom. 

Hall-based activities include board games, arts and crafts, karaoke, ball games and playing on the playstation, whilst trips could include things such as bowling, the cinema, going for food, a trip to the park, etc. Please note that this year we will be alternating between in-person and digital sessions to cater to the needs of all of our beneficiaries. 

It’s the volunteers’ job to help create a fun, safe and supported environment where the young adults can socialise and engage altogether, which in turn helps build their social and communication skills.

Volunteers will gain skills such as leadership, teamwork, organisation, communication, and must be committed, patient and, above all, be able to have fun!

Application process:

  • Complete SVC's volunteer application
